Valentine's Day

Our classroom will celebrate Valentine's Day and the 100th day of school on February 12. I will send home a class list today! The students will make Valentine Boxes to hold their valentines. If you have a cardboard shoe box taking up space at home, please send it in. If you do not have a shoe box, don't worry! I'm gathering some for those students who don't have one.
